Ruth says, “The Healthy Mummy has certainly saved me and my family money on our food bill. £22 was the total price of my latest weekly shop, (minus the household stuff). That is the lowest for quite a while and I’m loving it!
“It’s amazing what you can make on a limited budget. My plan was to utilise what I already had in my cupboards/freezer and build it up, alongside my shopping list.”
2x Salmon, dill and asparagus 4x Vegetable soup 4x Lentil soup 4x Tuna pasta with onion and red pepper 2x Feta and egg salad 3x Homemade Granolawith frozen fruit to make the berry topping to go with it. 2x Porridge and banana.
“In order to stay away from takeaways, I have 4x pitta bread in the freezer that I’ll be using as pizza bases for this weekend for dinners. I purchased some nice mince, which I plan to make into six portions between Chilli con Carne and Spaghetti bolognese bulked up with grated carrot and Courgettesto make it go further.
Use what you have in your cupboards and fridge/freezer to adapt the meal plan to suit. Search the 28 Day Weight Loss ChallengeApp with the ingredients you already have
Stick to your list! (I’m the worst for being habitual when shopping) and avoid the aisles you don’t need to go down to remove temptation.
Don’t go shopping hungry! (this is just going to end badly even before you begin)
Have a look through the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge App recipes and have a backup in place if things don’t quite go to plan – pasta is so cheap and versatile and I always have it in the pantry for just in case.
Ruth’s success story:
“Since the start of December, I’ve lost over a stone, toned up, dropped a dress size, gained heaps of confidence. My skin has been clearer and I have a lot more energy now – I am also fitter and stronger than I was pre-pregnancy!”.
Ruth adds, “If it wasn’t for the fabulous support of the wonderful Healthy Mummy support group on Facebook I doubt I would have stuck to it. It’s so different from all the other plans I’ve been on. It’s truly a journey with the most amazing, inspiring women!”
